    If you're trying to stream video, you will have very, very limited success using WMP11. TVersity works much better.

    I don't know exactly why you would need a fix?

    I just turn on WMP sharing, make sure my music is in there, and it works ;)

    Ok, so photos dont work well?

    I honestly have never tried much, mediashare is so crappy compared to other streamers I have not tried too hard with it in recent times :p

    Honestly WMP barely does the trick. Its much better to use Tversity or PlayOn.

    Also enable UNPN on your network router.

    That should have no effect on mediashare within your home network.

    UPnP on the router allows for apps to port forward for connecting outside of your network.
